lady was here yesterday for a dry run on the dnc stage. first lady michelle obama preparing for her second convention speech where, instead of trying to convince americans of her husband's character, like in 2008, she will probably be defending his record. the first lady slated to headline the dnc's opening night aims to energy graduates and turn out grassroots supporters in a state struggling with high unemployment. convention-goers spent monday taking in the music at carolina fest as president obama got a look at hurricane isaac damage in louisiana and campaigned in ohio. >> when governor romney had his chance to let you in on the secret sauce of job creation -- [ laughter ] >> -- he did not offer you a single new idea. >> reporter: vice-presidential nominee paul ryan also in north carolina monday a traditionally republican state president obama turned blue in 2008 by a thin margin less than 15,000 votes. >> every president since the great depression who asked americans to send them into a second term could say that you were better off today than you were four years ago, except f
for barack obama. some of the rather key ones is because he chose michelle as his wife. >> that was very sensible i think, yes. no, i think that she is a perfect partner for him. she is very strong. she's sort of balances, healthy, and practical firmness with gentleness and nurturing and she's a terrific mother and that is enormously important. >> you know barack better than most people. what will he be feeling? a lot of pressure? does he get nervous? >> i don't think he's nervous. i think he's very prepared. i think the speech is going to be great. and i think, you know, he's probably stretching his long limbs and excited to address the crowd. >> better than bill clinton's? that's the key question. >> i think he'll be different. everyone serves their purpose. michelle was about storytelling. about helping us to kind of frame the campaign issues and deeply, you know, loving intimate ways and bill clinton was about gaining perspective. on the last four years. and i think my brother is going to be about looking ahead. >> i think the crowd rather liked what you've just been saying. it's all
when the president is on the road. michelle obama told "us weekly" that she lets bo sleep on the bed when obama is not around. >> bill: is that right? >> yep. >> bill: i saw a funny joke the other day. oh, i know. in that bob woodward book. talked about when he first met barack obama was when obama made the democratic response to the gridiron dinner. when he was still in the senate. just elected to the senate. and he said that he had just seen a study that having -- a speech to give. having sex before giving a speech really made you perform a lot better. and he told michelle about this and she said well, did the best you can. you're on your own buddy. anyhow. all right. so chris let's start off with this romney video. because you know, romney has had a -- kind of a rough ride, right? since the convention. maybe a little before the convention. maybe goes back to his pre-olympic tour or when he appointed paul ryan but then there were stories about a lot of rumbling inside the romney campaign and then y

. i think the president and his family have already -- there they go. president obama and michelle obama boarding the plane taking off for portsmouth, new hampshire where of course president obama will hit the campaign trail. that is where dan lothian is already waiting for the president to arrive. so i'm sure the white house has already put out a statement on this jobs report. what's it saying? >> this is not the kind of numbers that would really put wind in the sails of the president as he bounces out of the democratic national convention. i've heard from two officials who tell me the president will in fact address the jobs numbers during his first stop here post the dnc convention here in new hampshire. so he will be addressing those job numbers. we'll be listening for what he has to say. we heard from the president's economic adviser who said in a statement in part, quote, while there is more work, there remains to be done, today's employment report provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the great depression going
pictures were published of the wife of president obama. i think michelle obama would take a different view about pictures of her topless than she might about someone on a beach in miami. i think that's the key difference. >> well, some might argue and probably very few, but some might argue that even if you're in a private home, is it ever wise to go outside of that home and take your top off? >> i don't think anyone would disagree with that. i have worked for celebrity clients for over 20 years. if any celebrity client came to me and asked me whether it was ever wise to take their top off in a public place anywhere, i would say absolutely not. so i think kate, the duchess of cambridge was unwise to do that. i think, however, that the punishment is inappropriate. it does not seem to me that justifies a worldwide set of pictures on the basis of and moments in discretion where she thought she was safe and where she thought she was private. >> well, it just comes on the heels of the prince harry scandal and the nude pictures taken of him in a private hotel room. >> well, i think this is absol
elitists than barack and michelle obama. they're friends with jay-z and beyonce. did i miss something? is hanging out with jay-z and beyonce a thing regular people do now? >> that's a fair point. >> everyone's always saying i'm unrelatable because i had a horse in the oolympics. let me tell you what, i would kill that horse if i could meet beyonce. >> yeah. so "saturday night live" back in force this season. >> i got to tell you, that is a beautiful horse. i followed that very closely. i did. i loved that horse. why are you laughing at me. >> what you took away from that was the horse. >> you know, the political jokes are funny, too. horse, fabulous. >> they miss sarah palin. >> they need big characters to be able to spoof. that's been challenging. >>> still ahead this morning on "starting point," important information for your bank account today. why you'll be paying more in overdraft fees and atm charges. a bit of a bummer. we'll explain why. >>> a desperate search is on for survivors after the avalanche in one of the world's tallest moments. a report on the rescue effort coming up
as 40%, and today when michelle obama goes out to the university of northern iowa, she will be giving a speech, but it's not just a speech, she is also be asking the supporters there to cast their votes nearly on the spot. there's a polling place just a few steps away. >> all right. peter alexander, thank you. >>> for more on this week's events on the campaign trail, we eco-eel look ahead to next week's first debate. tom brokaw is here, david gregory, mott railer of "meet the dress" and chuck todd, the nbc chief white house correspondent. too many titles, we're out of time. the president's closing argument. a two-minute ad he put out in a sign of the campaign, a sign of confidence, chuck, we'll start with you? >> we looked and did some of our own polling, did it the last couple of weeks and among people who say they will vote before election day, the president wins 2-1. that's why they are doing it. all about early voting. half of the battleground states, 50% or more of the voters will vote early, florida, colorado, nevada, north carolina. >> david, is there a risk at all if the obama
